Frida Kahlo (1907-1954)

I saw an interesting movie on HBO about Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. She was in a trolley accident in Mexico City when she was fifteen, the injuries from which ravaged her body for as long as she lived. She was married to womanizing fellow-painter Diego Rivera, who was a Communist and gave her plenty of grief. The movie, Frida, from 2002, is as much about Mexican culture as it is about Frida Kahlo.
